I agree. I think the only "problem" we currently have with our
tagging system is that the UI isn't so friendly. It's a pain to type
long URLs when referring to branches and tags. And I think you're
right, a solution to that problem would be to encode the knowledge of
the 'structure' of the repository ... somewhere ... so that users can
access branches and tags via short names. That would be a lot less
radical of a change than redesigning our tag implementation!
